F15. (1) Where either—
(a)the acquiring authority has made an unconditional offer in writing of any sum as compensation to any claimant and the sum awarded by the Lands Tribunal to that claimant does not exceed the sum offered; or
(b)the Lands Tribunal is satisfied that a claimant has failed to deliver to the acquiring authority, in time to enable it to make a proper offer, a notice in writing of the amount claimed by him containing the particulars mentioned in paragraph (2);
the Lands Tribunal shall, unless for special reasons it thinks proper not to do so, order the claimant to bear his own costs and to pay the costs of the acquiring authority so far as such costs were incurred after the offer was made or, as the case may be, after the time when in the opinion of the Lands Tribunal the notice should have been delivered.
(2) The notice mentioned in paragraph (1) shall—
(a)state the exact nature of the interest in respect of which compensation is claimed; and
(b)give details of the compensation claimed by—
(i)distinguishing the amounts under separate heads, and
(ii)showing how the amount claimed under each head is calculated.
(3) Where a claimant has delivered a notice as required by paragraph (1) (b) the acquiring authority may, at any time within six weeks after the delivery of it, withdraw any notice to treat which has been served on the claimant or on any other person interested in the land authorised to be acquired, but shall be liable to pay compensation to any such claimant or other person for any loss or expenses occasioned by the notice to treat having been given to him and withdrawn, and the amount of such compensation shall, in default of agreement, be determined by the Lands Tribunal.
(4) Where a claimant has delivered a notice as required by paragraph (1) (b) and has made an unconditional offer in writing to accept any sum as compensation then, if the sum awarded to him by the Lands Tribunal is equal to or exceeds that sum, the Lands Tribunal shall, unless for special reasons it thinks proper not to do so, order the acquiring authority to bear its own costs and to pay the costs of the claimant so far as such costs were incurred after his offer was made.
(5) The Lands Tribunal may in any case disallow the cost of counsel.
(6) Where the Lands Tribunal orders the claimant to pay the costs, or any part of the costs, of the acquiring authority, the acquiring authority may deduct the amount so payable by the claimant from the amount of the compensation payable to him.
(7) Without prejudice to any other method of recovery, the amount of costs ordered to be paid by a claimant, or such part of it as is not covered by the deduction mentioned in paragraph (6), shall be a debt recoverable summarily by the acquiring authority from the claimant.
